November 30, 2006 -- THE K-K-Kramer scandal murdered Michael Richards' career - but it's doing wonders for sales of the latest "Seinfeld" DVD.
Season 7 of the popular sitcom is outselling the Season 6 set (released on the same day last year) by more than 75 percent, and more than 90 percent over season 5 at some online DVD retailers, according to TMZ.com.
On Barnes and Nobel's Web site, the DVD set is the sixth-best selling and Amazon ranks it in 12th place.

Here is what I want to know.Why is it that everytime a "Freemason" does something like this,it's all of a sudden a reflection on the Freemasons? Why wasn't Mel Gibson's outburst against Jews all of sudden a reflection on Catholics or Christians?
How is it that a handful of men's actions,just because they are affiliated with a certain group,all of a sudden a reflection on the whole group? It's rather ridiculous to me.
mel gibson got attacked for making the passion because everybody said he was an anti-semite. he confirmed it this year and i can't believe nobody's slammed him for it. crazy.
Andy Dick hasn't learned anything from the Michael Richards incident.
According to sources, the hopped-up comedian hopped onstage Saturday at L.A.'s Improv comedy club and dropped the n-bomb on a room full of stunned clubgoers.

Still a Mason who recites all kinds of terrible racist jokes should not be tolerated.

Anyone ever notice that there are no black people in Seinfeld? i've seen probably 80 percent of all episodes and never once have I seen a black man. Oh those Jews.

Kramer called a member of the audience the N-word (repeatedly)
He was then called a cracker by a disgruntled member of the audience. (just doesn’t have the same effect, does it)

Isn't it strange that you felt it necessary to not write out the "N-word" but you had no problem writing out the word "cracker"?

I was reading somewhere that someone was punished for using the word "niggardly" but that word has no etymological connection to Latin niger or 'n-word'.
I know I'm kind of rambling on, but I think we should move beyond the point where such words that had stupid meanings added them in the past hurt anymore and strip the bad connotations or retire the word completely for once and for all.

Richards is a RACIST.
Everybody is racist. Some people have the balls to admit it, some don't.

I'm a Mason, and Michael Richards certainly does not speak for me nor demonstrate the characteristics of the brothers I know.
I agree with the others here who said that this behavior was outrageous, and the act of one man who has anger problems, not an organization.
